Sesame Peanut Noodles

Sesame Peanut Noodles

Noodles are very common in India and liked by everyone. They are sold at as street-side as well as high-end restaurants catering to every individual’s taste. Today I added sesame seeds and peanuts to give a different and unique flavouring to the noodles, and the result was Sesame Peanut Noodles. The seeds provide crunchiness, with the sesame seeds adding a nice flavour to the dish. These noodles can be served with any main course Chinese dish, such as kung pao chicken and veg manchurian. They are a good and different option to a regular main course. They are best served hot and fresh for a delectable taste. It’s easy and quick to make these noodles at home and I recommend using a wok instead of regular kadhai. Here is Sesame Peanut Noodles Recipe for your use.
